The LM78LXX series of three terminal positive regulators is available with several fixed output voltages making them useful in a wide range of applications. Datasheet search engine for Electronic Components and Semiconductors. LM data sheet, alldatasheet, free, databook. At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. Remember, the input voltage has to be larger than the voltage that the regulator regulates out.

The xx in 78xx indicates the output voltage it provides. This difference between the input and output voltage is released as heat. The greater the difference between the input and output voltage, more the heat generated. If the regulator does not have a heat sink to dissipate this heat, it can get destroyed and malfunction.

So, we now have 2 options. Either design your circuit so that the input voltage going into the regulator is limited to volts above the output regulated voltage or place an appropriate heatsink, that can efficiently dissipate heat. A lot of energy is wasted in the form of heat. If you are going to be using a heatsink, better calculate the heatsink size properly.

If we have a system with input 15 volts and output current required is. On the other hand, energy actually being used is: 5 x 0.

So twice the energy, that is actually utilized is wasted. On the other hand, if 9V is given as input at the same amount of load: x 0. The bypass capacitors help reduce AC ripple. The two capacitors are not necessarily required and can be omitted if you are not concerned about line noise. Capacitors will be beneficial in this case as they are good at maximizing voltage regulation.

The values of capacitors can also be changed slightly. The heart of the IC is a transistor Q16 that controls the current between the input and output and thus controlling the output voltage. The bandgap reference yellow keeps the voltage stable. It takes the scaled output voltage as input Q1 and Q6 and provides an error signal to Q7 for indication if the voltage is too high or low.

The error signal from the bandgap reference is amplified by the error amplifier orange. This amplified signal controls the output transistor through Q This closes the negative feedback loop controlling the output voltage.

The circuit in purple provides protection against overheating Q13 , excessive input voltage Q19 and excessive output current Q These circuits reduce the output current or shutdown the regulator, protecting it from damage in case of a fault. The voltage divider blue scales down the voltage on the output pin for use by the bandgap reference. Instead, the entire chip becomes the feedback loop.

If the output voltage is correct 5V , then the voltage divider provides 3. This change is amplified by Q7 and Q8, generating the error output. The error output, in turn, decreases or increases the current through the output transistor. The slideshow below also highlights some points with voltage regulators. Have a look.

We are all non native english speaking people here. However, we have updated the article. Hope it suits your requirements. What is impact due to current in these cases 1. Output of 5v from ac to dc wall mobile charger something says 5v mA output 2. Sir i made a voltage regulator using ic for powering my microcontroller but my chip isnt working Plz tell me where i m wrong.

Add a capacitor to input and output with values 0. I have used a full bridge rectifier along wd a transformer i tried to connect. I have 78M05 IC in D pak package. Thanks for the details. The voltage regulator produces constant output voltage of 5v with operating range input of v.

Does this IC boost voltage input is voltage is less than 5? If not, I am looking for an IC which has Operating range from v and constant 5v output. Is there any simple regulator like 78xx but which does not waste such a large amount of power into undesirable heat?

Please comment on which pin the TAB is electrically tied to. The heat sink you attach it to is often at GND. Thanks so much for details GOD Bless you. I wish to ask if the regulator can regulate 4v to constant 5v and how are the filter capacitors conected and which value is good for the circute.

A resource for professional design engineers. In this pin where the ground is given. This pin is neutral for equally the input and output.



Temperature ranges may vary by model. This change is amplified by Q7 and Q8, generating the error output. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist. So, if the capacitor were in series with the regulator output, there could only be AC current through. Tukinos However, we have updated the article.
